The Disappearance of Angel Wilson

17 year-old Angel Wilson disappeared from her home in Spokane, Washington on August 10th, 2007. According to her father, Angel had been a habitual runaway since she was in middle school. Once she turned 13, Angel began dating older men and abusing drugs. She dropped out of high school in 10th grade and rarely ever stayed at her father’s home after that—she often stayed with friends and other various people, but she never stayed in the same place for very long. However, by time Angel turned 17, she got permission from her father to marry 21 year-old Will Wilson. By then, it appeared that Angel would have a more permanent address with her new husband.

Angel’s husband Will is the last known person to have seen her on the day she disappeared. Will stated that when he returned from work on the evening of August 10th, 2007, he caught Angel smoking methamphetamine inside their home. An argument ensued, and Will gave Angel and ultimatum for her to quit the drugs, or their relationship would end. This angered Angel, and she stormed out of the house. When Will awoke the next morning, he found Angel’s wedding ring on the table. According to various reports is the last known trace of her, and she has not been seen or heard from again.

In more recent years, social media posts about Angel's case have surfaced. On one particular Facebook post, a person who claimed to see Angel after she vanished commented. This person stated that they believe Angel is dead, and a new boyfriend is responsible. This information has not been verified by police or any news reports, but it is certainly a possibility. It's unclear if police have identified this "new boyfriend."

Due to Angel’s history of leaving home, authorities classified her as a runaway. Still, she was considered at-risk due to her history of drug use and associations with older men. Even though she was married at the time of her disappearance, Angel was still legally considered a minor. She remains missing and is still considered an endangered runaway to this day. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please contact the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office at 509-456-2233.


  1. My name is Brandon Elder. I'm the one who posted that comment about Angel being dead. I do believe that she is. I believe her abusive meth dealer boyfriend killed her because in this day and age you do not just disappear without a trace unless you are gone. And since he had already hurt her, and then we never saw her again it's just what makes sense. But by the time I communicated with enough people to realize that she had gone missing and wasn't just quiet and not talking to anybody, I couldn't remember exactly which house we dropped her off at. I know that it's off of 5th and Altamont but for the life of me I can't remember the exact location and it haunts me. I wish we could find her and bring her home.

    1. Thank you for your comment! I purposely covered your name in the screenshot to protect your privacy, but I appreciate you providing even more insight. I hope she is found too. Such a heartbreaking case.
